Super Falcon Allowances: Reps Committee fumes as Gasau, NFF President, shuns invitation


An ad hoc committee investigating the face-off between Super
Falcons and Officials of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) has once again
summoned Ibrahim Gusau, the president of NFF.


The Chairman of the Committee, Blessing Onuh, issued the
summons on Wednesday after Mr Gusau shunned the invitation of the committee.


The committee was set up to investigate the issue of payment
of allowances to the Super Falcon team following their exploits at the World
Cup in Australia.


Mohammed Sanusi, the Secretary General of THE NFF, had
represented the NFF president, noting that the president could not appear
because of ill health. However, the committee rejected the representation.


Ms Onuh accused Gusau of taking the committee for granted.


“Nigerians are interested, Nigerians are watching. The girls
did extremely well and they made Nigerians proud, so we shouldn’t take this
investigative hearing lightly.


“We gave an opportunity for the president of NFF to appear
before this Ad-hoc Committee. I will say invariably he is the one summoning us,
he came up with an excuse that is not as important as what we have.”


She added that the NFF president had the “effrontery to send
his SA that he won’t be able to make it. He is taking us for a ride and we will
not tolerate it.”


The NFF Secretary General was then asked to go and the NFF
President ordered to appear on Thursday.
